How do I set the default PAGE, instead of just the default app?

I've followed the instructions on http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/4.0.9/Developer/DefaultApp to set the default app to search, but I'd like to set the default home page to the search page instead of the summary page.

The summary page has some searches for host/sourcetype/etc that are unnecessary. Just trying to squeeze every last bit of performance out

Go to Manager » Navigation menus.

From here you should see a list a Navigation names for example default. Make sure you have selected the app you are wanting to work with from the "app context" dropdown and select default.

You should now be able to edit the Navigation menu XML.

Depending on which dashboard/view you want to default to just add default="true"/> after view name="summary". Make sure to clear out the current one so that you only have one selected.

Blockquote

<nav>

 <view name="flashtimeline"/>

 <collection label="Overview">

   <view name="about_dashboard" default="true"/>

Here is a link to the help page from Splunk: http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/4.0.8/Developer/TieViews
